    Is the workload at Cambridge so high and competitive that there is little time for socialising and falling in love, and finding a partner? Or is this the same as any other university?

    everything you believe is true mate, i once studied geography at Gonville and Caius college and i faced the same problem. All the females in my class were too focused on their studies to even start a conversation at the dinner table, it really affected me emotionally, but i wish you all the best, it was very hard to go through...

    Maybe you should just go to Manchester Met instead, I'm sure you'll find love there (single mums)

    :lolwut:

    I'm sorry, did they change the reason why you go to university while I wasn't looking?

    If you want to socialize and fall in love, work at Morrison's and just go out every night. Cause, y'know, getting a degree might get in the way of that.

    Ok, I didn't go to Cambs myself, but I am 100% sure that the whole reading poetry and punting thing is a myth.

    You seem to see studying and meeting a partner as incompatible.

    I know of many people who met their partners at university.

    However, if you look like your avatar, I can see why this didn't work for you. 😀

    So no couples who met at Cambridge then?

    Is this the real reason so many go to Durham?

    I met my wife while we were both undergraduates at Cambridge. Plenty of our friends did the same.
